  • a Mean percent nucleotide divergence ± standard error calculated on the basis of sequences from Table 1.

  • b The mean divergence within groups is based on all pairwise comparisons of strains within the group.

  • c The mean divergence between groups is based on all pairwise comparisons of strains from different groups.
